Vtg WILLIAM SPRATLING MODERNIST PIERCED EARRINGS ART DECO SILVER TAXCO MEXICO
VINTAGE WILLIAM SPRATLING EARRINGS From Rancho Spratling. They remind me of the stone carvings you see guarding the Aztec Pyramids in Mexico. Also very Art Deco in their lines. Stamped on the backs WSR Rancho Spratling Taxco Mexico. 925 This is the hallmark that was used after he moved his workshop to his Ranch at Taxco Viejo a few miles from Taxco. They are for pierced ears, unusual for Spratling earrings as most have screw backs. Each is about 1 3/4" tall and 3/4" across. They weigh 15.7 grams (in total) of Sterling Silver. They are in Wonderful Vintage condition with no issues. Lots of natural patina that I will leave for you to decide if you would like to shine them or not. The photo of them on a ruler makes one of them look very dark. They are both the same this is just a shadow. More Vintage & New Jewelry in my store.
